Lakefield Park beach remains unsafe due to high levels of bacteria, according to Peterborough Public Health.
In its weekly update of area beaches, Peterborough Public Health lists only Lakefield Park as unsafe. Recent samples of the water at the beach have detected higher-than-safe levels of bacteria.
The health unit says the increase in bacteria may be attributed to heavy rainfall, large numbers of waterfowl, high winds or wave activity and/or large numbers of swimmers.
